Spicy Gochujang Sesame Tofu

Spicy Gochujang Sesame Tofu

From Christie at Home 


450 grams tofu extra firm, sliced into rectangles
1 stalk green onion sliced (optional garnish)
½ tbsp vegetable oil

For the glaze:

1 tbsp gochujang
1 tbsp regular soy sauce not light or dark!
½ tsp gochugaru
1 tsp sesame oil
½ cup water
1 tbsp sesame seeds
½ tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp white granulated sugar


Strain the water from your tofu and allow the tofu to sit in a colander for a couple of minutes. Then pat dry with a clean towel. Slice into bite size rectangles.

In a small bowl, whisk together your glaze ingredients until well combined.

Then in a non-stick pan set over medium heat, add your cooking oil. Once the oil is hot, carefully lower tofu into the pan and fry on both sides for 7 minutes, or golden crispy brown.

Once tofu is golden and crispy, pour in the glaze and let it simmer over medium heat for 2-3 minutes until thick, smooth and glossy.

Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with green onions (optional).
